WASO’s brain booster

The West Australian - - HEALTH+FITNESS -

This year young peo­ple have greater ac­cess to clas­si­cal mu­sic and its brain-stim­u­lat­ing ef­fects with cheaper tick­ets to West Aus­tralian Sym­phony Orches­tra per­for­mances.

Un­der a part­ner­ship be­tween MSWA and WASO, any­one un­der 30 can at­tend 2019 per­for­mances for $25 per ticket.

MSWA, which pro­vides sup­port and ser­vices to peo­ple liv­ing with all neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions, has been us­ing the ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fits of clas­si­cal mu­sic on the brain for some time, in­cor­po­rat­ing mu­sic into its re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­grams for stroke, brain in­jury, MS and many other neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions.

“This is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to bring mu­sic into the lives of our com­mu­nity, par­tic­u­larly as we recog­nise the ben­e­fits that mu­sic has on mo­tor and cog­ni­tive skills and over­all brain health,” MSWA CEO Mar­cus Stafford says.

The West Aus­tralian Sym­phony Orches­tra has part­nered with MSWA to of­fer cheaper tick­ets for young peo­ple un­der 30.
